Get in the Car
If you have a newer model, you may have a built-in USB port. If not, you can use your lighter plug with a car charger.
External chargers are cheap enough at drug stores, or you can buy them on Amazon. Good to keep an extra handy, just in case.
If you still have power, but don’t want to charge your phone using a wall socket, try the USB port on your TV if you have one.
